While the 19th Amendment is often celebrated as the beginning of female enfranchisement, what did its passage mean for women of color, who were still barred from voting on the basis of race? As America reaches the centennial of the 19th Amendment in 2020, Brent Staples discusses the history of a movement that ultimately achieved the right to vote for some women, but not all.

The results of the 2018 midterm elections and the arrival of a diverse new field of democratic presidential candidates have made American politics more visibly female than ever before.

Join a panel of acclaimed journalists and thinkers as they discuss women, power, and politics in America and beyond.

Lincoln's Second Inaugural: The Story of a Presidential Masterpiece

Speaker: 
Harold Holzer
Wed, 02/12/2020 - 18:30
Wed, February 12th, 2020 | 6:30 pm

EVENT DETAILS

Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer surveys the 16th president’s majestic second “malice toward none” inaugural address as one of the greatest of American political orations. At the time, the speech generated entirely partisan responses—and even an assassination attempt. Exhausted yet determined, Lincoln nonetheless did nothing less than re-interpret America’s founding and light the way for “peace among ourselves” after a long and bloody civil war.
